Saturday 8th to Sunday 17th September – St Davids Oriel y Parc  Visitor Centre and Landscape Gallery. Enchanted landscapes: Pembrokeshire in Myth and Legend.  Did you know that an ancient kingdom is said to lie off the north coast of Pembrokeshire or that a Yew tree in Nevern churchyard appears to bleed? Described in the Mabinogi as ‘Land of mystery and enchantment’ the ancient landscape of Pembrokeshire has many tales to tell. In this exhibition of art work from the National Museum of Wales collections, discover some of these stories and learn how they reflect the coastal landscape today. Gallery open daily 10am to 4pm.
